Let's talk about sheer curtains, as they are amongst the most popular. Semitransparent, these curtains are preferred in rooms in which light is desired to enter. The materials used for the creation of such curtains include polyester textile voile, cotton lace and similar fabrics. You can expect sheer curtains to provide very little or absolutely no protection against direct sunlight. However, they are considered to be pretty useful by those who desire protection against UV harmful rays. Due to the fineness of the fabric, the visibility won't be affected at all. Sheer curtains are often used for privacy reasons.
The history of curtains goes right back to the 1700's when they were made out of cotton wool or silk, silk being the most expensive and exquisite. In the middle ages fabric was very expensive so only the very rich or upper classes would have them. It wasn't until the industrial era and the development of the textile trade that made fabric prices more affordable to most people. Once the glass industry was in full swing and homes were installed with glass windows, this again helped with the textile industry and brought the prices of curtains down.
Seasonal prints and colour are the basic inspiration of contemporary curtain designs. Light and airy fabric like cotton, net and light silk is preferred in spring/summer season. Flowery prints are in vogue, whether they are printed boldly on the fabric or printed in a subdued manner. Abstract and geometrical prints also make great contemporary designs for curtains. By choosing contemporary designs for curtains, you can assert how contemporary and modern is your own personality and attitude towards the changing trends of home and office furnishings.
If you were to consider the many different types of curtains, you will be left feeling confused; there are a wide range of creatively developed curtains. According to your taste and personal style, the type of curtain you choose reflects your personality and reflects the feel of your home you wanted to create. Depending on the room you want to dress with curtains, the function and style of each considered curtain needs to be discussed and well thought out. From kitchen windows to bedroom windows, the function of these curtains must suit that particular room.
